Put your best Halloween costume on (don’t forget your dog’s) and plan on participating in these awesome dog events in Los Angeles.
Remember, Halloween can be a stressful time for some pets so don’t force anything and be sure to have a secure dog leash- you may even consider a hands-free leash so that you don’t risk dropping it or your dog pulling away from you. It also doesn’t hurt that you’ll be able to eat, drink, and enjoy the festivities a little more!
Of course, if your pooch isn’t the social type don’t let that stop you from enjoying dressing your pooch up at home and enjoying selfies together or hire a dogsitter to keep your pet company while you go mingle with other dog-lovers!
